Your home is long overdue for some sort of upgrade and you may be finding yourself wondering where your money would best be spent. Do you splurge on a kitchen makeover? Maybe your living room is crying for a facelift.
Actually, your bathroom is the space where you’re likely to see the most return on investment. This is where you use the most water and escape the stresses of life with a long, relaxing shower.
Here are five reasons to remodel your bathroom.
Increase Your Home's Value
The first place a real estate agent will assess to determine the value of your home is your bathroom. Because of the excessive moisture in the space, your bathroom will appear older than the rest of your home.
Transforming your bathroom to make it more efficient, inviting and functional will go a long way toward increasing your home’s value.
Improve Energy Efficiency
If you have an older bathroom, you probably have outdated fixtures. By updating these features in a remodel, you can improve your home's efficiency. This will reduce your impact on the environment. It can also lower your energy bills. Upgrading faucets and showerheads to WaterSense-labeled fixtures saves the average family 13,000 gallons a year. Also, low-flow toilets use less than 2 gallons per flush compared to conventional toilets which use as much as 7 gallons.
Create More Space
Bathrooms tend to be pretty small, which means they have to be efficiently laid out. Most homeowners struggle with their outdated bathrooms because these rooms do not have enough space for their needs. A bathroom remodel can maximize the space. It can provide better storage and flow.
Add Luxury Touches
Your bathroom remodel can also be about your personal enjoyment. We all spend a lot of time in the bathroom. You might as well enjoy it. During a remodel you can add luxurious amenities such as touch-activated faucets, jetted tubs, walk-in showers and more.
Appeal to Buyers
If you are preparing to sell soon, then a bathroom remodel can help you get more money from buyers. Some statistics suggest a good remodel can get you 2 or 3 percent more for your home. The key is to do smart upgrades that look good and do not cost too much.
